Wednesday Morning, June 10, 1857,
"Once more our glorious banner out
Unto the breeze we throw ;
Beneath its folds with song and shout
We'll charge upon the foe."
The Late Riot in Washington.
The first Monday in June wan the day of the
Municipal election in Washington City. Cer.
lain officers, equivalent to Town Councilmen,
Burgesses, were to be elected in that great city.
For sonic years past, the Americans had carried ;
these elections in this stronghold of office-seek. '
ors, of corruption, and all abominations. It
appears that, hoping to distinguish themselves,
a small club of rowdies in Baltimore, calling
themselves "Plug Uglks," amounting to some
thirty or forty, all South Americans, determined
to go over to Washington, to mach
confusion as possible on the election ground.
In pursuance of their fillibustering enterprize,
they went down tc the seat of Government, for
the purpose of (filibustering in a small way for
a single day only ; but they committed one
grand mistake—they knew that Walker and his 1
tillibusters hod been protected by Buchanan 1
and his Government, and that he had ordered I I
the captain of one of our frigates to receive I
W alker and the leaders of his gang on board I
his ship, when they were about to be caught
nud hung by the Central Americans ; and that
these Brigands had been brought to the United
States at the expense of the National Treasu
ry ; say, further, that Walker was coming in
person to Washington, to hold a secret confer
enee with Buchanan;—and under these pros.
pecte, the Plug Uglies set out from the city of
crabs and oysters. But they started en the
wrong track of the railroad ; they went over to
Washington to fillibuster against the Sham De.
Inocracy, under the very windows of the build.
ing in which the Slaveoerisy holds it daily roan.
. c a„ an dtie urgagty orgies, forgetting I
ws. Weaker wad on the other track of the road
If we are to believe the Liklfoco Press, these
Baltimore "Plugs" were surely behind Walker
in their notions of fillibusting enterpriv. It
appears that on arriving in WashiegTon, they
immediately formed themselves into several
hunting parties, and engaged in chasing the Ir
ish through the streetsof the Capital, with dogs.
[See thelLedger of Juno 2d.] They had no
doubt brought the dogs from down South; pro.
bably from Florida. After they were through
with this sport the "Uglies" seem to have col.
lected themselves together again, and marched
in a solid body of thirty or forty, to a place in
the American Babylon called the "Northern
Liberties," where one of the ward elections was
in progress. According to the same lecofoco
Press, the Plugs hero attempted to take pos
session of the polls, for the base purpose as the
Loeolocos allege, of preventing honest Nation.
al Buchanan Democrats I from voting. But
the Buchanan National Slaveocraey was here
too numerous and powerful (being many lime
dreds strung) for the Plugs, and drove them
from the election ground entirely. The Ugliea
loft, calling the Buchanan Democrats many
hard names, not forgetting to remind them that
had it not been for the South Americans, of
whom the Plugs were part, Buchanan would
have been hoeing his cabbage for next winter's
sour krout, at Wheatland, and his cabinet and
government would have been hanging on the
tail of the new Comet. The Plugs next procu
red a small brass swivel, so small that one man
, oultl curry it across the street, and taking this
to the end of a market house, which stood a
short distunce.from the election ground, they
challenged in a loud voice the Buchanan dent.
neracy to come on, called them cowards and
traitors, and said. that if the Bucks would leave
the election ground and come to the market
house, they "would blow them to in a mo
ment—but they were cowards, and were
afraid to come on," Jce. It appears from the
Locofoco Press that the day was rainy, and the
market house was crowded wills people, some
of whom were country people, who had brought
marketing or wore detained by the rain—oth•
era had come to buy marketing, and were wait
ing for the shower to pass away ; others were
mere passers-by, who had gene into the market
house to avoid getting wet. Amongst them
were many women, and these people in the mar
ket•house seem to have had nothing to do with
the Plugs, the Bucks, or the election. It ap•
pears that Mayor Magruder a renegade Whig,
and an old man called General Henderson, a
Virginian, who is at the head of the Marine
corps of the Navy, live near the market house,
and these Bravoes instead of sending for the
Shertff, (the City Marshal) to come with a pos.
se of a hundred or two citizens to arrest the
noisy Baltimore Plugs as brawling rioters, (for
as yet they had hurt nobody) conceived the
brilliant idea of calling on President Buchanan
to order out a battalion of Marines, and Jimmy
like a genuine coward, sent an order to Isaac
Toucey, the Secretary of the Navy, to order
out the marines, and out the marines came;
with a posse of officers and fixed bayonets.
The marines were drawn up in the street near
the market•house, full of people, with the Plods
and their swivel between the marines and the
people in the house. Thu • marines being thus
in a position to rake the market•house and the
people in it from end to end.
The muskets of the marines were loaded
with a ball and three buck.shot—the Plugs at
the end of the market house around their swi
vel, still calling the marines "cowards," and
daring glem to fire, the Plugs doubtlessly be.
lievieg that the officers of the marines would
not be such savages to order the battalion to
fire on the swivel, and thus massacre the peo
ple—men, women and children from end to
end of the market•house. The Locofeco press
says that at this time General Henderson,
who was dressed in citizen's clothes, went in
amongst the Plugs, placed himself before the
muzzle of the swivel, and desired them not
to fire on the marines.
They did not fire t but as soon as Henderson
was out of the way, the officer commanding
the marines, ordered them to charge the swivel
with fired bayonets. The charge was made,
and the Plugs, without firing the swivel, ran
behind the blocks, stalls and pillars of the mar•
bet house, and round the corners of the nearest
houses, and began to throw atones and fire pis.
tots at the marines, one of whom was wounded
by a pistol ball, and another killed by a
club or other weapon. The mayor now or.
dered the •officer of the marines to fire, and at
his order the whole battalion of marines deli.
vered their lire dosetn and through the crowded—when the smoke cleared away.
it was discovered that about fifty persons,
some suppose more, including men, women,
and children, were killed or wounded.
Those of the wounded who 'yore able to fly
made the best of their way from the scene of
j slaughter . The
eswhTl wan not
fired at
and when thSgreata„le„asover,one :11e
Lieutenants of marines took it and carried it
round beyond where it was captured, to a place
of safety behind the lines of the marines, and
here its contents were extracted and found to
consist of a small quantity of gult.pwder,
few musket balls, and enough stones and
pocket.handkerchiefs to. fill it to the muzzle.
We take this to be a fair sample of the forth.
coming government of Jimmy in Kansas—we
shall see anon.
More lives have heen . lust in this cruel npd
cowardly massacre than were lost by Comm°.
dore Hull when he took the Guerriore ; many
more thati Decatur lost when be took the Mace-
Nae of the Baltimore Plugs were either ,
killed or wounded, save only one who seems to
have put out his toot too far from his hiding
place, and received a slight cut in the flesh of
his leg from a buck-shot.
To excuse these horrible murders, the loco
foecs have raised the story that the Baltimore
Plugs were bunting 'the Irish through Wash
ington with blood-hounds, and have magnified
the little goose and duck swivel into a six
pound cannon. This much for Jimmy's reign
, so far.'
Important,Nunetion Applied for.
Au application has been made to the Su
preme Court of Pennsylvania for an injune•
tion to restrain the Governor from selling the
Main Line of the Public Work.
I of Jane dtxt this application, which has been
jmade by the Beard of gateau ,t.Temlaiesionere,
be argued and doenled. T his injunction
has been anxiously looked far, but it wan ex•
pentad and Area that it should come front
others than the Canal Commissioners, and ap.
plied for as restraining the Pennsylvania Cen
tral Road frost buying, rather than the State
government front selling in obedience to the
bill passed by our Legislature. That the in
junction in either case will be granted, there
can be little doubt. Lawyers of ability have
declared that one could be easily obtained,
and we have learned tilso that moat of
the Supreme Judges have so expressed
themselves in priate. There will ho ex.
Citing times ahead, and a very singular and
interesting struggle is at hand, which the
whole people will watch with interest. If the
injunction be granted the applicants. the sale
of the Main Line is of course stopped for the
present, and the whole mutter will go back to
the Legislature.
One of the Perjurers Sentenced.
On Saturday last, Judge Conrad of Phila
delphia, sentenced John Cochran—convicted
of swearing falsely that the naturalization pa
pers. upon which ho voted, were his, when
they belonged to another person—to three
years imprisonment in the penitentiary. This
is but one . of the many perjured creatures
whose votes controlled the election in the city
hest fall. The punishment is severe, but by
no means adequate to the enormity of the
crime for which he has been made to suffer.—
A few more convictions would perhaps dater
the political managers, who induce the igno.
rant to perjure themselves, and stuff ballot
boxe, from this method of deciding elections.

A Progressive Age.
The last number of the Inventor, published
in New York, and received at this office, con
tains anlengraving of a patent machine which
cuts, threshes, cleans and bags grain' ll at the
same time. It ha., also engravings for patent
air inflated skirts, which look like the huge kat:
Iles used in distilleries. And lastly a patent
machine to learn the babies how to walk. We
almost wish we had been born a century later,
for by that time, we imagine, the curse upon
Adam and hisidesceneants—that man should
earn his bread "by the sweat of his brow" will
be annulled by the improvements of science
and mechanism and there will be au work for
the hands to do.
In another column will be found an interest
ing account of affairs in Utah. The Chronicle
of Pittsburg, truthfully remarks, that since the
resignation and explanatory statement of the
United States Chief Justice for Utah, our pa
pers have been filled with letters, descriptive
statements, and revelations as to the treasons.ble sentiments entertained, and the high-hand
ed outrages committed by the deluded and fa
natic followers of the unholy despot Brigham
Young. Such a polity, and social condition
exists in Utah as is a disgrace to any commu
nity professing itself to be civilized, and the
murders, rapes, debaucheries, beastly orgies
.d other unchristianlike abominations, which
are daily committed there, are an outrage up
on.common decency, a shame .d reproach to
our government, and a foul stigma upon our
national character, and call at once for imme
diate correction and redress. The recitals of
customs and manners which prevails amid that
I lepxous society, the ',ongoing and sensual lusts
are simply heathenish and abominable, and
equ din d's.raiting horrors to the worst mites of
C.:libelist, Buddhism, or Thugism. So full
of danger and responsibility is the position of
Governor there at present that even lejur Mc-
Culloch, a man void of fear and notoriously
itching for adventure, for. trying and dangerous
positions, has been forced to reject the appoint
meet as Governor of Utah. What can one
man do as a ruler over a community of dupes,
fanatics and conscienceless villains unless his
authority .he overwhelmingly supported by
troops and captains of tens, of fifties, of hen
dred and of thousands? It is conceded on all
•hands that it is high time that this infectious
plague-spot should be completely expunged
from the face of the earth, or that law and or
der must take the place of anarchy, crime
and heathenish guilt. The wh.ile country is
ready to "applaud to the very echo," and firm
ly stand by any prompt and effective measures
to this end, adopted by our government. Nei—,
ther time nor expense should be spared.
Desperate diseases requires desperate reme
dies, and it only remains now to elect a wise
and sensible policy, and pursue it firmly and
rigorously until the end be accomplished. The
proper policy of the Government, says the
Philadelphia Inquirer, and one which we er.
dorse, may be summed up in a few words.
1. The removal of Brigham Young, and all
other Mormons in authority under the National

to sustain the new Governor, in the event of
an open rebellion.
3. The promulgation of a Proclamation by

monism, or •rho may desire to leave the Tor•

Important Developements.
It was discovered yesterday that the two

A wainan in the house—supposed to be the

Outrages of the Mormon Authorities in ,
A letter from Utah, published in the New
York Times, states that all letters sent there
by mail are subjected to careful scrutiny by
Monnon agents as they aro sealed and deposit
ed in the post-office. Tile object of this pro
cording is to prevent the departure from the
territory of any communications with the out
ward world by which the true condition of af
fairs in Mormoudom may,liceome known; and;
to accomplish this end there is no crime which
Brigham Young and his chosen instruments •
would hesitate to commit.
The calendar of Mormon oppression openeil
in 1851, since which time there has been no in
termission iu their crime and cruelty. The wri
ter continues :
"It is well known that Judges Branderherry
and Brockus, and the Secretary of State, Her
ris, were driven from the territory years ago,
and that nearly every other Federal officer sent
out here has been compelled to resign and flee
the country within two years after reaching it.
So, too, quiet, unoffending private citizens have
been robbed and driven from their homes at
Salt Lake, time and again, by large bodies of
armed men, whc set everything like law at de•
fiance while claiming to he its officers; and
who, in the enforcement of their indiscriminate
exactions of black mail, never hesitated to sac•
rifiee even human life. I refer, fur example, to
the marauding expeditions to Forts Bridger
and Grosvenor, and the murder of Wm. Walker
in August, 1853. In that exploit of brigand
ism, disguised under the forum of law, thou•
sands of dollars in money and property were
collected as booty to enrich the coffers of the I
Mormon church, and reward the unscrupulous
cut throats who played leading parts in the
bloody drama. .

denounced as apostates, for daring to do their
duty and trying to enforce the laws. It was
the anxious wishof the Mormons to d !stroy the
records of this case that induced them to burn
the books and papers of the United States CIT.
miit Court. The United States official., Gen.
Burr, the Surveyor General, and Dr. Hart, the
Indian Agent, are now in a very dangerous po
sition. Open threats of burning or tearing or
burning down their offices and killing or mill
treating them, are daily made, and in one of
the southern settlements at a Sunday meeting
it was voted to raise a party to cut their thririts.
Unless the government sends a military force
here immediately, it will be impossible for anv
off i cers to stay here through the summer, aura
it is constantly eaid, in the streets and iu the
meetings, that all the Gentiles must leave in
the Spring. At Social Hall, a few evenings
since, the speakers, Messrs. Wheelock and
Clinton, declared that it was the intention and
purpose of the Church to drive out the Gentiles
turfy days.
The U.S. District Court of Utah commenced
its session on Monday, the 9th of February,
Judge Stiles, a seceding Mormon, occupying
the bench. The U. S. District Attorney is Ho
sea Stout, an appointee, uf course, of the Gov-1
ernment at Washington, and a noted member
of the Danite band. Upon the opening of the
tourt he arose and stated that no Grand Jury
would be empannelled, as there were no cases
to be presented' worthy of its notice 1 All the
members of the bar are Morinons, except Mr.
David H. Barr, United States Surveyor Genet ,
ul, and Dr. Hurt, an officer of the United States
Indian Department.
• Uporrthe pretence that the U. S. Court can
take no aosiuxance of territorial laws, whllwthe
court was th session on the 12th ultimo, the
Mormon mamhare-oPthe bar and others of the
Denim band, inveigled judge Stiles into a pri

and then with revolvers at his head and knives
within an inch of his throat, forced him to pro

to "sustain the laws of Utah I" Thus overpow

The crier accordingly announcing that it
would meet the next day for the purpose of
transacting any territerial business that might
be brought before it. Upon attempting to do
this, the whole audience sprang to their feet,
and the Danite murderers, who filled the court,
threw off their coats, brandished their knives
and revolvers, and created so great a confusion
that the Judge was obliged to adjourn the court
at once.
The next morning. whirls was Saturday, the
court opened amid much excitement. The
whole Mormon populace were armed, and had
been Warned to such a degree by the incendi
ary speeches of Ferguson, Stout, and other
Mormon lawyers, that the least pretence would
have been hailed to Inatome% every Gentile in
the place. Tao names of Messrs Burr and
Williams, Gentiles, were stricken from the list
of attorneys, and the court immediately adjour
ned sine die. Thus closed the last term of the
United States Court that can ever be held in
this Territory until the government establishes
its supremacy by a vigorous exertion of physi•
cal force: What a disgraceful spectacle is here
presented to the world I

BENEDICT—In this borough, on Tuesday,
the 2d inst., HARRIET M., adopted daughter of
A. W. Benedict, aged 19 years and 6 months.
Tread softly—lay lightly, her beautiful form,
'Neoth the clods of the valley nil silent to rest;
Another frail bark has now weathered the storm
And has anchored, wotrust, tithe Haven of rest.
Take back, mother earth, these pa!e ashes,at last
To moulder again to their prituitive dust;
It is seldom, indeed, that a treasure so chaste,
Or so lovely a charge is consigned to thy trust.
This treasure, so early assigicil to our keeping,
The care and affection of friends could not save;
Alas ! that so soon, amid sorrow and weeping,
The sun of•her life should go down in the grave.
That sun has gone down ; but its rays will still
To comfort and cheer the lone night of despair
While faith points on high with her radiant
And tremblingly whispers, "We'll meet her
op there."
Yea, the fondest, the dearest of ties may he
Yet the grierstricken heart, while it sinks
'nenth the blow,
May atilt fbndly look up to a union in Heaven,
Where sorrow and parting we never shall know.

The Farms consist of the hest limestone soil
of the most superior quality for farming, in a ra
pidly improving place, into which an extensive
emigration is now pouring, The property is lo
cated in Elk County, Pennsylvania, in the midst
of a thriving populat ion of some 10,000 popula
tion. The climate is perfectly healthy, and the
plague of the west fever is unknown. also
has en abutillance of the best quality of Coal
and Iron. The price to buy it out is from $3 to

fn considering the advantages of emigrating
to this locality the following are presented t
FIRST —The soil is a rich limestone, capable
of raising the heaviest crops, owing to whirls the
settlem't has attained its press•st groat pros,•e:-
SECOND—IC is Lilo centre of the great Ninth
%Vest Coal Basin, and is destined nom, to he -
clime one of the greatest business plates in the
State. It will supply the great Lake market,.
(according to population and travel in the Cu
ion.) It has five workable reins of the best Bi
tuminous Coal, amounting in the aggregate to
over 22 feet, n•hich makes 22,000 tuns °rectal
under each acre. This trill make the land of
inestimable val..
The eminent state geologist, Dr. Cllll, 'V.
Jackson, of Boston, has MOO a geological sur
vey of the land and analyzed the soil, the iron
ore and the limestone. This report together
with maps trill be furnished to inquirers.
FOERTII—Three railroads are laid out thro'
this p r ope r ty. The Sunbury and Erie Railroad
gives as a tnarket for our coal to the lakes—it
runs from Erie to Philadelphia. A large part
of this road has been finished, and is ease in
running order. A heavy litree is non working
*ern Erie toward our land in tho western direc
tion, the moans for the completion of n•hich has
been raised—it will soon be finished. The Al
legheny Valley Railroad connects us with New
York, Boston and Pittsburg. • The Venting°
Road connects us with the West.
There are already good Turnpike Rondo run

have been opened to accommodate the emigra
tion and settlement which has already taken
There is no opportunity equal to it now offer
ed to the MEW who want, to provide himself tt
Immo in an easy way, awl make a settlement
where be can lire in prosperity and independence
No case of the fever ever having been known
to occur in this settlement— It is not like gohog
to the backwoods of the IVest, among perhaps
intolerant people, when, there is no society, no
:lmbed or schools, where the price of land is
high, and where the emigrant, alter being toned
to the healthiest climate in the,world, has to en
dure sickness end pain, and perhaps ruins his
health and that of his homily. But here is a
thriving settlement having three towns, contain
ing churches, schools, hotels, stores, saw•mills,
grist-mills, and everything desired. There is a
,ash market at hand. The lumber trade last
year amounted to over twu hundred millions
teat of loather. In a short time, owing to the
Coal, it will become still more valuable es a
number of iron works and manufactories will
soon be started ; they are at present starting
them extensively at Warren. Even for those
who do not wish to go there, the payments are
such that they can easily Puy farms to save their
fittuilies front want in the future, or to gain a
competence by the rise which will take place in
the value of their lands. By an outlay scarcely
missed, a substantial provision can he made.
Persons should male early application, , apply
or write to E. Jellies, Secretary, No. 135 Wad
nut Street, below Filth, Philadelphia. Letters
carefully answered giving full information.
Shares or tracts of land can be bought or se
cured by letter enclosing the lirst instalment of
five dollars, when the subscriber will he fur

given. Persons can also purchase from our
Route from Philadelphia to Tyrone on the
Pennsylvania Central Railroad, and thence by
stage to the lond. This is a delightful season to

is afforded. Enquire for E. C. SHULTZ, Nag.,
